    Kernel accidentally moved to trash and no internet

    I'm a fool and I managed to accidentally move the kernel into the trash... I am now obviously unable to boot. grub bootloader obviously gives: 'error 15: file not found'
    I found the following link below to offer good guidance, but I don't have any internet access.

    What I have:
    small old cluster using Rocks 2.6.18 (CentOS)
    GNU GRUB 0.97

    previous kernel and location:

    I wondered if I could edit the boot commands to direct grub to the kernel in the trash but I couldn't seem to get that to work (not sure how to get to trash... perhaps this idea is stupid).
    "kernel ~/.local/share/Trash/xen.gz-2.6 ... "

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I'll have to find a way to get internet access and start over.

    Old posting. But, if you can boot off a CD or flash memory, install something like Puppy, boot on it, mount the correct partition, and try to move the file using Puppy. While I have not done that exact thing, I have done the equivalent tasks for other reasons.

    I realize you may not have a Puppy flash drive so you are back to the basic problem of no Internet. However, if you do not have a Puppy CD or flash drive get one at the first opportunity and keep ti forever (more or less.) Puppy or its equivalent is to a computer user like a hammer to a mechanic or carpenter.
